The Furrion grey inlets on my 2015 flying cloud have started to discolor. This is very annoying! The trailer is less than a year old. So I decided to upgrade to the Furrion stainless steel inlets 1x TV and 2x 30A, as they looked nice on the website.
The 30A inlets loose the blue LED. This is not a big deal as they have not worked for 3 months anyway!
The process was very straight forward, and took less then 30 mins for all 3, including refreshing my beer! Here are some notes I made that should help anyone else doing the same upgrade.
When I ordered the TV inlet, I could not find on the Furrion website, or anywhere else, the option for to have both Cable and Satellite connections, so I ended up ordering the Cable and Phone option. Good news - I found out during installation that these are interchangeable inserts!!!
As you can kinda see in the image “back of SS TV” there are 3 screws that fasten the insert (sorry for the bad pic the 3rd screw is hidden near the bottom right hole due to a bad camera angle!), these are the same as in the square flip up Furrion inlet that was factory installed, see the image “TV inlet”. If you undo these on the factory installed inlet, you can remount in the stainless steel version very quickly.
The stainless steel inlet screw hole positions are exactly the same as the factory installed inlets. I even used the same screws that were already on the airstream. Just a heads up, they are round heads and you may prefer to source some countersink ones for a cleaner finish.
I think these are a great upgrade and match the finish of the airstream so much better than those plastic flaps!
The 30A inlets were a super quick swap out. Undo screws, undo cable clamp, undo the individual contact screws. Then pull everything off. Slip on the new rear cover and rubber gasket. Attach the wires and tighten them down. Secure the cable clamp and screw the whole assembly back on
Hopefully these notes will help others ☺
